Abstract
The measurement of skinfold thickness provides a valid estimate of body composition and may be used as an index of overweight. However, the layman does not readily understand such terms as skinfold thickness, body density and percent fat. Based upon previously described formulae for the derivation of body density and percent fat, a nomogram has been developed to predict ideal and maximum recommended body weight in kilograms from skinfold thickness measurements.
